If you wanted to buy a home, would you believe it if someone said to you, “We will help you find the home you want, and when we’re done, we will send you a hero savings check in the amount of $2,000 simply because you serve the community”?
Well, that’s exactly what Homes for Heroes does nationwide for tens of thousands of heroes like you. It’s what we do, and we do it well. Here’s a look at our process and how easy we make it to get the hero savings you deserve.
Who Qualifies as a Hero?
To qualify for Hero Rewards® savings you must:
- Work with at least one of our specialists through the closing process of a home and/or mortgage.
- Have previously or currently work in one of our hero professions: law enforcement, military, firefighter and/or EMS, healthcare or teaching.
It’s that simple. And that’s how we aim to make it every step of the way for you.
To further clarify, our hero professions are broad professions that contain any number of specific job titles. For example, “law enforcement” covers police officers, sheriff’s deputies, corrections officers, dispatchers, troopers and more. “Military” covers active duty, reserve and veteran members of every branch of the armed forces. So, if you consider yourself part of one of our hero professions, chances are you qualify for the Hero Rewards® savings we offer.
What are Hero Rewards®?
Hero Rewards® are the savings our specialists provide to heroes. When you buy and/or sell a home with our local real estate specialist, you will receive a check after closing for 0.7% of the purchase price, or $700 for every $100,000 of home price. Plus, if you work with our mortgage, title and inspection specialists, you can save $500 on lender fees, $150 on title services, and $50 on a home inspection. That adds up to thousands of dollars in savings! Plus, if you buy a home AND sell a home, your savings can double. On average, our Hero Rewards® save our heroes $2,400.
What is the Application Process?
Honestly, there is no application process. Simply sign up on our website, where we’ll ask a few questions to provide you the best tailored service to your needs. This includes your name, contact information, hero profession (past or present), whether you want to buy, sell, buy and sell, or refinance, and where you want to do it. That’s it.
Once you submit that information, we automatically match you with either a real estate specialist or mortgage specialist, depending on which part of your journey you’re on. There’s no obligation to continue after the initial conversation. There’s also no fees, extra paperwork, or red tape. Just savings for you.
Working With Our Specialists
Once you’re signed up, you don’t need to search for your own real estate agent or lender. Instead, our system will automatically connect you with a specialist in your local area. Better yet, after submitting your information online, our specialist will contact you within 24 hours to answer your questions and get the ball rolling! Whether you’re looking to buy, sell or refinance a home, our local specialists will work with you to accomplish what you want. If you’re not sure where you are in the homebuying journey, or know you might be starting your journey in the near future, you can still sign up. That way we can still pair you with a specialist, and when you’re ready, they’ll be ready.
Several of our specialists are former heroes themselves, so they understand what buying a home for someone like you takes. They can help navigate things like VA loans if you’re in the military, or gaps in employment or pay if you’re a traveling nurse. They can even show homes across the country if you need to relocate. This is also one of the key advantages of working with our specialists, besides the savings of course.
Largest Hero Savings, Easiest Program
There are other programs that offer similar benefits to Homes for Heroes. But, we guarantee the most hero savings among all national programs. We have also received 5 star ratings from 92% of our heroes. Often hero feedback reflects tremendous appreciation for the service they received from Homes for Heroes specialists, in addition to the savings.
Other programs have extensive criteria and applications heroes must fill out before they’ll work with you. Not us. We believe you work hard serving your community. That’s enough proof for us to provide you with extraordinary service and savings. When you add up the hero savings potential through your Homes for Heroes specialist team, including a real estate agent, loan officer, title company and home inspector, you’ll save more and get better service when you choose Homes for Heroes.
